    I have a rental 928G Z loader for snow removal this winter and cannot find any place on it for a block heater.
    The Deere's we have all have a port with a threaded plug you remove and install the block heater.

    Does anyone know where a block heater goes on a 928G Z or have a picture of what one looks like?

    Find someone who sells Phillips Temro products and they should be able to help. It involves removing a frostplug from the side of the block. From what I remember it is on the LH side. The instructions included with the heater should tell you everything you need to know.

    I think it is on the block under the turbo. It depends what 928G you have and if it has a 3116 or a 3056E.

    They install where a freeze plug goes.

    Thanks for the replies looks like it is a 3056E with a frost plug port for the heater.

    Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction.
